Our Seller Says:

"We moved here because of its rural feel yet close to everywhere. Our favourite room is the kitchen because it's our social room, and the views from the bedroom and the back of the home will definitely be missed."

The property is approached by a sweeping driveway accessed via a private electric gate, providing extensive car parking and a large timber carport to the front. 

Starting with the main residence, you are greeted by a lofty reception hall that introduces the touch of luxury found throughout, in the bespoke suspended staircase to the solid oak doors and high-end flooring. Welcome storage space for coats, boots and household items is afforded in three double closets.

There are two fine reception rooms that are generously proportioned and awash in warm light through a number of floor length windows. The sitting room is complemented by soft, neutral hues and sumptuous carpeting, inviting the family to gather round the feature wood burning stove and catch up on everyone's day. For more formal occasions, the elegant lounge is configured to make full use of its imposing light and space, with bi-folding doors that connect to the entertaining deck at the rear, perfect for summery cocktails with friends.

Continuing to the stunning kitchen/family/dining room which adopts a lovely open concept, offering expansive areas to be enjoyed by all of the family. The kitchen is fitted with an arrangement of bespoke matte white cabinetry offset by seamless worktop space, and a coordinating central island providing further storage and ideal for bar seating. Modern Smeg integrated appliances include an oven, induction hob, extractor hood, two warming drawers, fridge/freezer and a microwave. Upscale tiled flooring takes you to appointed areas for a dining table and chairs, and a considerable family room elevated by a vaulted ceiling and skylight, with bi-folding doors framing the far-reaching countryside views.

Completing the ground floor is a wide utility room with an integrated dishwasher and space for white goods, and a beautifully tiled shower room accented by a walk-in shower and a lengthy vanity unit with WC and wash hand basin.

A fabulous highlight of the first floor is an impressive full height viewing window, creating a seating area to appreciate the idyllic landscape. This feature glazed design is echoed in the opulent principal bedroom, which is vast in size and finished with a high pitched ceiling. Abundant storage is given with wardrobes and drawers fitted along two walls, and further mirrored sliding wardrobes. A refined en-suite shower room adds to the feel of luxury, comprising a walk-in shower enclosure, low-level WC and inset sink.

The three remaining spacious double bedrooms continue the flawless decor and plush fitted carpet, and all benefitting from immaculate en-suites. The decadent family bathroom is fitted with a raised bath and LED lighting, WC and wall-mounted wash hand basin accentuated by smooth tiling detail.

Completed in 2017 and sitting adjacent to the house, the separate annex offers well-appointed and versatile accommodation across two levels. On the ground floor, there is a large living/cinema room, modern shower room and a utility room. Moving upstairs, lies an open plan breakfasting kitchen and lounge, two double bedrooms and a smart bathroom.

Manicured lawned grounds wrap around the home, with a variety of areas for adults and children to enjoy. The sizeable sun deck to the rear is great for sociable get-togethers and a relaxing hot tub to unwind after a long day. A superb addition is the fully enclosed and safe children's play area which is astroturfed.
